Trend T4 Plunge Router

Trend T4 Plunge Router

1827 days ago by tenontim | 12 comments »

I bought one of these routers about 10 months ago. It’s the first and only plunge router that I own, and I couldn’t be more pleased with it. I guess the thing that I like the most is the size to power ratio. I think it’s listed at about 8 lbs and puts out just over 1 HP. It’s very well made and easy to operate, with it’s variable speed motor and smooth plunge mechanism. It has a plunge stop with 3 different settings. Comes with a very nice oversize guide, ...

K-Grip Siphon Spray Gun aka Critter Spray Gun

K-Grip Siphon Spray Gun aka Critter Spray Gun

2041 days ago by Matt (Upper Cut) | 11 comments »

This is a review of the following http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=17858&filter=critter%20spray I have had this for a while, and it was $40 when I bought it, it’s $50 now. I primarily use this for spraying interior latex paint on furniture. This gun has a bad rep, but I like it. Yes, it makes a cloud—wear lung protection. I mix the paint with water, pop it on the compressor, set it to 40psi (I have a little pancake compressor) and spray small projects. I ...

"Lumber core" plywood - be sure  you know what you're getting

"Lumber core" plywood - be sure you know what you're getting

1590 days ago by JJohnston | 11 comments »

I thought I’d try a new (to me) product I found at my local “good” lumberyard – “lumber core plywood” – to build a few utility-grade shop projects. It’s made of solid lumber pieces laminated with thin face veneers. The core pieces are tongue-and-groove joined along their edges, which you can see in the first picture (if you can’t make out the part in focus, look below and to the right at the piece in the clamps. You can see the contrast be...

Storage Units

Storage Units

1971 days ago by Randy Sharp | 10 comments »

These little gadgets (cans) are recycled from another use, but come in very handy in the storage of misc. nuts, bolts, washers, etc. I own a small collection of these storage devices myself. This company produces several colors, versions and sizes. Other companys also produce these economical units.

The Best Mobile Base I Could Find

The Best Mobile Base I Could Find

1553 days ago by Twigger | 10 comments »

I looked everywhere on-line and elsewhere for a mobile base for my Jet ProShop table saw. This one from woodworker.com works great: heavy duty; leveling devices; easy to actuate the casters. Yes, you do have to provide the 3/4” plywood; but you get a very handy shelf under your table saw or whatever. And it’s easy to assemble. $72.99 Everything the web site says is true:Combine the Universal Mobile Base Kit with your 3/4” plywood and you can easily build a movable b...

Angle Checker

Angle Checker

1035 days ago by Don W | 10 comments »

I bought this angle checker being I was ordering a bunch of other stuff from Woodcraft. I’ve seen these almost everywhere so I figured it would be handy to have at my sharpening bench. Bottom line, it just doesn’t work. When you slide a plane blade in (even a thick iron) it goes into the hole cut at the end so the angle of the blade really doesn’t register. You can pull it back some and “eye ball” it, but if your going to eye ball it, you might as well just use a...

Simpson StrongTies

2139 days ago by Tim_456 | 9 comments »

This isn’t really a woodworking tool however I’ve never seem them referenced in any magazines or online so I thought I’d toss it up here. If you’re not familiar with these go to your local big box store. Simpson Strongties are metal connectors in various shapes. Mainly used in the building trades a few of these connectors can be used to make shelves and even workbenches. Anyway, they’re a bit pricey but they make a quick work of building shelves and benches...

500workshop tips & jigsBy: Stuart Lawson ISBN-10: 1861084234 ISBN-13: 978-1861084231 When someone promises you 500 things in one book you should use your mind and say; Naaaaaaaa…I didn’t and regret that.This book have some good tips, a few jigs that are useful and so on, but it never explains well and the illustrations are not well enough made to show the full story. So sorry, I’m sad to say this book is not worth the money, but even more than I was not clever enough to figure th...
